  • Visual Literacy:Based on the concept that visual images are a language, VL is: Ability to understand and create images (Gangwer, Visual Impact, Visual Teaching)
  • “We do not see with our eyes. We see with our brains.” –John Medina, Brain RulesWe become visually literate by…Visually DECODING = translating the content & meaning of visual imageryVisually ENCODING = expressing thoughts and ideas in visual form-------------------------------------Image credits:MorguefileBlued Eye: scan (brain01):
  • FACT: Approximately 65 percent of the population are visual learners.
  • FACT: The brain processes visual information 60,000 faster than text.
  • FACT: 90 percent of information that comes to the brain is visual.Visual problem solving—taps into higher-level thinking skills
  • FACT: Visual aids in the classroom improve learning by up to 400 percent.Study done: Text & oral presentations—much less efficient for retaining certain types of information:Orally = 10% retention, tested 72 hours after exposureAdd a picture = 65% retention, 72 hours later!(Source: Medina, John. Brain Rules. Pear Press, 2008.)
  • SO…how does VM instruction connect with TEKS?Technology TEKS (6-8): 10.A, 10.D 11.A-B ELAR:Knowledge and Skills Statement: Media Literacy“Students use comprehension skills to analyze how words, images, graphics, and sounds work together in various forms to impact meaning.”TEKS (6-8): 13A, 13B, 13C, 13DSocial Studies (6): 21A, 22, 23(7): 21A, 21C, 21D, 21F, 22, 23(8): 30A, 30C, 30D, 30F, 31, 32Science: Scientific Reasoning and investigations strand(6-8): 3A
  • These are the basic TEKS that most directly mention/relate to teaching visual/media literacy.However, visual media can be used to teach practically ANY content-area TEK across the curriculum. Incorporating visual media and teaching media literacy is also a strong component of…- 21stCentury Skills- AASL Standards- NETS Standards for students- CCRS: College and Career Readiness StandardsDifferentiated Instruction Multiple Intelligences Brain-based teaching/learningPuzzle Pieces – Open Clip Art Library Intelligences clip art:
  • Visual Analog: What you can see  What you thinkPerceptions = informed by our observationsObservations = informed by 5 sensesArticulate = using 5 sensesVisual media—can help address TEKS that are problematic:InferencingConnotation Objective vs. Subjective
  • Confirmable visual data = evidence in an imageDescribe image as if the listener cannot see…5W’s = Questioning/Response modelNothing is too obviousStart Big—then go smallYou can always “get there” (ID the purpose of the object/image)—but start by LOOKINGCan always start out with something familiar to practice analysis techniqueChange ROLES/HATS of observer: Ask…what would a COP say is going on?
  • Forms touse—These can be used to help students do some pre-thinking/pre-writing before discussing an image together as a classlinks/attachments on wiki for the documentsPrimary Source Analysis tool – LOCSTW Chart – attachment on wiki
  • From Picturing America Collection: James Karales: Selma-to-Montgomery March for Voting Rights in 1965  Partner Activity: Viewer & Sketcher—see next slides for sketches
  • Drawings from partner pair & sketch activity: Viewers & Sketchers - Choose two images for this activity - Have students pair up, and explain that they will take turns in the roles of viewer and sketcher - Viewer: Sees the image and describes it orally to the sketcher - Sketcher: Has back to image/does not see the image, and draws what the viewer describes to the sketcher—as accurately as possible, but only based on what the viewer shares with the sketcher - Show the first image once the sketcher’s back is turned away from projector screen - The viewer then describes what s/he sees while the sketcher draws
  • Drawings from partner pair & sketch
  • Graphic Novels are also useful for visual instruction—take panels and have students make inferences, even phrase them in the form of a TAKS question…
  • You can also cover or remove a panel, and have students create the missing link of the action. TOON DOO is also a great free tool for students to use to create their own comic strips or books.
  • This is the link to the wiki that includes additional instructional resources, lesson ideas, and more!
  • Where can you find great images/visual media? Some resources follow.
  • Also another site called Jigsaw planet
